  • Hi --I'm not sure if messages are private, or not!

    Anyway, another Canadian! I'm from Vancouver, gradually migrating over to Portugal. Enjoy! Wonderful people and a rich, beautiful culture.

    If you have French, it may help out with older Portuguese who don't speak English. Many of them learned French in school.

    Have fun and bom caminho!

    Thank you! I function pretty well in French. I can certainly make out a lot of what is written in Portugues, but I have no ear for it (yet). Vancouver is also home, but I doubt I will ever return (housing prices)...

    I am excited about this camino as I had planned on a week in Portugal at the end of my first CF in 204 and a calamity at home forced a change in plans.
    Thanks again!

    In the same situation as you: function pretty well in French; taking Portuguese here through the local cultural centre. Getting used to sounds takes a long time. A lot of cut-off beginnings and ends, +often doesn't sound at all like written!

    But people are very forgiving, if you try, and really, other than the smallest villages, you'll find someone who speaks either English or French.

    Have a great time!
